Biographie

Dr Marta Divall is Laboratory Manager at EPFL in the group of Prof. Tobias Kippenberg at the Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements. She has obtained her masters degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Szeged. She carried out her PhD work in Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK (Dr. Ian Ross) and at University of Szeged (Dr. Karoly Osvay) working on the development of high power ultrashort pulse laser systems in the UV regime. She has utilized her knowledge to develop photo-injector lasers for electron production at Daresbury Laboratory in the UK, CERN, where her main research is focused on generating unique burst mode pulse-structures for electron beam combination at 12GHz and Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland, where she was in charge of developing femtosecond resolution timing tools and the active stabilization for the laser systems used in SwissFEL complex.

Andrea obtained both his BSc and his MSc in Physics with honors at the University of Milan. Towards the end of his studies he became passionate about applied quantum research and joined LPQM in September 2020 to do a master thesis project on Superdoncucting Circuit Optomechanics for a year. During his thesis he worked on the first realization of multimode optomechanics in the microwave domain. After going back to Italy to get his degree, he rejoined the group in March 2022 to embark on a new adventure on a technology-transfer project in the field of integrated photonics

Biography

During my bachelor’s study, I worked in Kim Kihwan’s trapped ion quantum computing group at the Insitutue for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences of Tsinghua University, China. I primarily worked on cryogenic helical RF resonators, and realizing beam splitter gates for boson sampling using ions’ motional states. Here at LPQM, I am currently working on the generation of non-classical quantum states in macroscopic systems through optomechanical interactions at room temperature, and also chip-based nanophotonic applications.
